She thought she could get away with it.
She thought no one would find out.
Now, this embarrassing video of Nancy Pelosi’s illegal haircut will cost the Democrats everything.
While much of the initial panic of COVID-19 has settled, mandates and restrictions still exist in order to contain the spread of the virus.
No one knows this more than the Democrats who have been fervently pushing these restrictions and maintaining quarantine.
For example, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have been warring with the Senate Republicans about a COVID-19 relief bill, preventing it from passing until their exact demands are met.
However, despite their seemingly solid beliefs, the Democrats constantly bend their “ironclad” rules to accommodate whatever new situation they believe will earn them more votes.
The best example of this breach is the Democrats’ support of the ongoing protests across the country.
While they say that no one should go outside or even breathe next to their neighbor, protesters get a pass because they are “fighting for what they believe in.”
But that’s not all.
Recently, Nancy Pelosi was seen breaking her own quarantine rules to go get a haircut.
Normally, this story would not be breaking news, but in light of the Democrats’ fervent and adamant warnings to stay inside and maintain quarantine law, this small action has big consequences.
Bryan Preston, a writer for the blog PJ Media, offered an insightful – if not sarcastic – view of the situation.
“You catch that? Pelosi broke the law. She must want grannies besides herself to die! That’s how this works, right? Obviously the virus is very smart. It knows whether you’re protesting (good) or whether you’re going to church (bad) or trying to make a living (also bad).”
And therein lies the issue.
Pelosi is talking out of both sides of her mouth.
On the one hand, she’s demanding people stay home to flatten the curve; no one should go to work, no one should go outside, and no one should leave their homes unless absolutely necessary.
On the other hand, people should gather in large crowds to protest and it is acceptable for Pelosi herself to request the services of a salon that has been closed for months.
Erica Kious, who owns the salon Pelosi visited, told Fox News what she thinks of the events:
“It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can’t work. We’re supposed to look up to this woman, right? It is just disturbing… We have been shut down for so long, not just me, but most of the small businesses and I just can’t – it’s a feeling – a feeling of being deflated, helpless and honestly beaten down. I have been fighting for six months for a business that took me 12 years to build to reopen,” she explained. “I am a single mom, I have two small children, and I have no income.”
Kious’s words resonate with every American struggling to find work and earn an income these days.
And Pelosi’s actions truly are a “slap in the face” to the ordinary people she claims to fight for.
